    So i have updated my S7 Edge to the Android 7.0, but there are certain issues with regards to it.
    Firstly, its all white and light blue in the drop down menu and notification centre. Any idea how to change that?Cant see clearly because of this.
    Secondly,I want to change the theme from white to dark blue or black . Any idea how to do this?

    I'm not on Nougat yet but on my s7 edge on MM I downloaded a Theme from the Theme Store called Simply Basic.

    But be aware I read a post recently where the person is on Nougat and the themes they tried hadn't been updated yet. Perhaps trial and error ?

    Go to settings

    Then themes and wallpapers

    Tap the theme bar

    Top right corner, search for 'material'

    You'll find one material Gray and blue and another one called material dark

    Download both

    When they're done downloading, hit apply

    You can also search, 'black' And you'll find all black themes

    Don't know what others are referring to. These themes work perfectly on my S7 edge running nougat

    Good luck.

    Can you please check if the Theme called Simple Basic is working OK with Nougat.

    I searched for it and couldn't find it.

    I think when people say themes aren't compatible they mean that a lot of themes which were previously available for download aren't anymore.

    And I think same is the case with the one you're referring to. Many themes which I had previously installed on marshmallow don't appear on nougat anymore. But some of them do. Maybe these few are the only ones who the developers have made compatible.

    Sorry.

    But you will find plenty of other simple minimalistic themes.

    Thank you for looking.

    It comes up as SB in the Theme Store.

    As you say many will and are available to choose from.

    Checked SB as well. No sign of it. And also, the theme store is location specific. Maybe it will be available for where you live. Let's hope for the best.

    I don't think you can change the notification center. I used one of the themes and everything changed except for that. It's still white.

    If you're asking me then I have the UAE version of the S7 edge. Unlocked Dual SIM model. I live in Pakistan though.

    It can be changed, it depends if the theme developer changed it or not.

    The actual notifications portion of the shade cannot be changed without Good Lock, which isn't updated and available for Nougat (yet). Any of the themes will leave that portion white.

    I miss Good Lock.

    Thanks, I thought he was talking about the top portion of notifications, I corrected it post #15.

    I will have to check out good lock, I'm not on nougat yet so should work for me.

    You can sideload nougat on an at&t s7 edge. I did it and while it's notifications are much improved, the battery life is still horrendous for me on snapdragon version
